Horoscopes: Putin and Rasputin

Below is a dual image of the natal horoscopes of Russian dictator Vladimir Putin (October 7, 1952) and ‘holy man’ and con artist Grigori Rasputin (January 22, 1869). As you see the charts are messily penned upon with astro-notes and both men were born during transit Uranus in Moon-ruled Cancer (see chart for the 3 dates of Rasputin’s Uranus Return/s around the time of Putin’s birth–Uranus in Cancer tells of those who fraternize with strange or unusual people). And both were/are visionary maverick who were born under Solar Eclipses in late Leo (astrological degrees!) with different Saros Series–15 North 1868/69 and 8 South 1952, yet conjoined by degree in the 25 to 28-degree range of royal, Sun-ruled Leo.

Rasputin’s 15 North theme: joy through commitment. Putin’s 8 South: separation, loss; possible physical injury (Brady). 8 South last perfected in 2006 @29Virgo; 15 North last manifested @22Scorpio as the Prenatal Solar Eclipse (‘PE’) of Winter Solstice 2012!

 

Putin-Rasputin

And curiously, Rasputin’s and Putin’s Solar Eclipses conjoin the natal Mars and Ascendant–with royal Regulus rising–of Donald Trump (who fancies himself a ‘king’ but you may know him as a con artist and a liar) and all were activated or triggered by The Great American Eclipse of August 21, 2017 in the 1 North series, aka, The Mother of All Eclipses. The caution for Regulus: success if revenge is avoided, otherwise all that’s been gained will be taken away). 1 North themes: ‘unexpected events’ and ‘info is distorted and possibly false’ (Brady’s Predictive Astrology). Well, we’re certainly inundated by false information and so-called ‘fake news’ these days, aren’t we? And propaganda. Especially since deceptive, elusive, Neptune has been floating through its own sign of secretive Pisces and trailing paranoia, fear, flooding, leaks, contagion, fraud, scandal, and dissolving borders in its wake.

Now my intention here is to make these two natal horoscopes available online for future reference, speculative though their data may be, and naturally there are other cosmic links and time links between the two men, plus Mr. Trump. But in an effort to blog briefly, I shall close and leave them to you to sort out if and as you wish!

On 11.27.12 a Venus and Saturn rendevous

Perhaps you’ve heard of what promises to be a lovely cosmic display at dawn on Tuesday November 27, 2012 as Venus and Saturn rendevous in the heavens.

Plus, click for info on the tango of Venus-Saturn-Sun occurring on December 21, 2012 that ties in with the often-touted, much-heralded Winter Solstice 2012 which times a very rare galactic alignment.

Naturally, I had to check a Tropical horoscope to find the degree that Venus and Saturn meet at dawn on November 27th so that we may consider its *Sabian Symbol (word picture) for a few evolutionary details. Setting the chart for the White House (should old habits be forgot?), Venus clocks in at 6 Scorpio 44 at dawn while slower Saturn has reached 6Sco14 in the Zodiac.

Actually their astrological conjunction will be exact on November 26, 2012 at 8:19 pm est @ 6Sco11:07 during the Mercury Station Direct @ 18Sco10:13 which will occur 2 hours 31 minutes prior to the Venus-Saturn conjunction. As you know, ‘voting’ Mercury turned Rx on Election Day 2012 and we’ve seen several states with contested outcomes and recounts which should be completely settled very soon with Mercury moving forward.

Lovely Venus and Old Man Saturn

Now you either know or can easily find details of what a Venus-Saturn pairing means astrologically but since I tend to focus on Political Astrology, I’ll add here what expert astrologer Michael Munkasey says about the duo’s combined energies in Politics and Business according to the Hegelian Dialectic; my feeling is that, as with midpoint pictures, any, all, or none may apply at various times:

“Thesis: Restrictions on wealth or income; law enforcement avoiding difficult or cumbersome issues; changes forced on enterprise by new social, artistic, or musical values; building the value of the enterprise.

Antithesis: Restrictions on the way society is able to function; elderly people in the enterprise who have artistic tendencies; a law enforcement bureau which derives pleasure from restricting the movement of people.”

(Source: Midpoints: Unleashing the Power of the Planets.)

Hmmm…let’s not get onto the level of the “fiscal cliff” or tax cuts expiring debate in Washington DC in this brief post but the above potential does makes me wonder if the Venus-Saturn rendevous has anything to do with current workers’ strikes in the US and the upper management that will most probably clamp down on them.

Ex: protests continue with Wal-Mart workers intent on striking on Black Friday, the beginning of the Christmas shopping season in the US.

*Venus-Saturn’s ‘7 Scorpio’ = “Deep Sea Divers”; keyword: INVOLVEMENT. Themes include “a challenge to self-refinement” and “Self-fulfillment (is) through an ever-increasing interest in day-by-day problems.”

Marc Edmund Jones, in his book The Sabian Symbols in Astrology adds the negative expression of ‘7 Scorpio’ as: “fundamentally unsocial instincts and a resort to wholly absurd escapism.”

Seems to me our ‘survival of the fittest’ society already has way too many of those of a Social Darwinian mindset with ‘fundamentally unsocial instincts” toward their fellow man!

So, on that rather grumpious note, I’ll close with a Happy Thanksgiving to any and all in the US! And yes, let’s remember our displaced Hurricane Sandy victims by contributing if and all we can.

Did you know that Staten Island’s Dr. Atlas Foundation is a great way to donate? Here’s a link to the organization’s Twitter feed.

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel is essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
